It's sort of wild that the Newport Cigarette Commercial #4 has 5000 more hits then the other commercials in the series, when some of the other commercials are comparable (Like #1) Anyone want to comment?

#1 has unbelivable special effects for its time. And the intro bars of music make a great loop for sampling, too! It's time consuming to watch so much material. If you ever want to drive yourself crazy, watch all the Folger's ads back to back. Same script, different couple. And always the grocer or Mrs. Olsen to the rescue! I think most people can handle about 12 in a row before they completely burn out.

I wish more of those Folger commercials ended like a couple of them do with the participants making a triangular shape with their fingers and then holding it to their eye. I know the triangular shape is supposed to be representative of the "mountain grown" slogan but with them holding it up to their faces and looking through the finger-triangle with a single eye I can't help but get "Eye in the Pyramid" flashes.

Off the top of my head I can't remember which ones have that ending and which don't. I just remember being disappointed that they all didn't end with a tribute to the Illuminati.

Trilateral French Roast! I forgot about that cryptic hand sign. Isn't there one where she puts her arms up in the air and talks about "the mountain"? So bizzare!
Times have changed. Husbands could insult their wives about their coffee "I wouldn't sludge an engine with this crap!" and the wife goes forth seeking answers..Nowdays you would simply end up with a coffee colored shirt!
I dig the Folger's display in the grocery store with the steam constantly flowing up from the coffeemaker. Being 47, that sort of stuff just tears me up with nostalgia!

I assume these these people are dead for speaking the word illuminati............. and that no one else is brave enough to utter another peep about it.
